Tusculum University, M.A.
in Elementary Education (2019)
Welcome. I’m very happy to be teaching in person after so long. This will be my 2nd year at Loudon Elementary. I taught Kindergarten last year and have moved to 1st grade this year.
My most memorable lesson in elementary school was in third grade. The teacher showed us “The Mysteries of Harris Burdick” by Chris Van Allsburg. She asked us to create a story for any of the illustrations. I chose to write a horror story and she encouraged me to do my best despite the genre. That experience taught me the importance of providing students with work that is interesting and unique to the individual.
I am part of a family that consists of my wife, daughter, son, 1 dog, 2 cats, and 2 frogs. I enjoy spending time with them (not so much the cats), reading, and most outdoor activities.
Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, or comments.
